Unpaid internship in Ghana
Heritage Charity Foundation (HCF) is a non-governmental, non-partisan, non-denominational concerned with issues affecting the development of the youth, women and children in the Tagadzi community in the North Tongu district of Volta Region of Ghana. Heritage Charity Foundation was founded in January 2011 but was officially recognized in March 2014. The idea was spearheaded by a Ghanaian Social Worker and a Professional Community Health Nurse, after a series of deliberations and thoughts on how to curb the upsurge of moral degradation and problems facing the youth and women as a result of a number of factors such as unemployment, streetism, drug abuse, teenage pregnancy, child labour, rural-urban migration, violence against women and children, HIV/AIDS and others.
